Recently I heard God say, "I am using detours and delays for My glory! I am in charge of twists and turns! I am working all things together for good."
Have you ever had a vision or an assignment you believed was from God but it didn't go according to plan?
Sometimes, we envisage a direct path leading to God's promise, but for a time we find ourselves headed in an unforeseen direction! We may even be knocked back, slowed down, or sidelined for a season.

Have you ever dug a well? Most people nowadays probably have not. Historically, wells are so important. If you did not live next to a river you had to dig down, usually very deep, to find water.
For humans, water is life. We are about 2/3 water and our planet is about 2/3 water. Biologically speaking, water is life.
How, When and Where?
A funny thing about digging a well is there is no "payment" until you hit the water. Without modern equipment, it could take days, weeks or longer to reach the water.
